Nationally-known broadcaster Kurt Becker has been named Altamont's 2012 Citizen of the Year.

Becker received the award Saturday night at the Altamont Chamber of Commerce Community Banquet. 

For years, Kurt has supported a variety of charities in the community, usually with little or no fanfare.  He has worked on the Altamont Library Board and the Bethlehem Lutheran Church Sesquicentennial Celebration.

Becker is also known for his auto racing and horse racing broadcasting that has carried him across the country.
